In the business world, any entrepreneur who intends to reach a desirable peak with his brand and achieve success must be spontaneously creative. The ability to think out of the box and come up with innovative ideas on the spot must be an innate trait for any business owner because global business is not static; you must learn to adapt to the ever-changing phenomenon.
Debashish Talukdar is one creative entrepreneur that has mastered how to adopt new mechanisms that suit his business models. He is an entrepreneur and the co-founder of Talukdar Consulting, a cooperative company, and the founder of Valetudo Systems, who have obtained skills and knowledge worldwide.
His brand, Valetudo Systems, has two products, The first product, Helios, comes in the shape of an oven, and it uses UVC and magnetron to sanitize food. It also comes with an in-built camera. Once the food is prepared, the chef puts it into the Helios device. First, the UVC works on decontaminating the surface of the food; it doesn’t get into the core. UVC is a form of ultraviolet light and is germicidal.
So what happens to the germs inside the food? Well, that’s where magnetrons come to light; what does a magnetron do? Magnetrons generate microwave energy. The microwave energy travels through a waveguide and is distributed into a metal cavity where the food is cooked. The waves are absorbed by the food and excite water molecules in the food. This heat then transfers throughout the food cooking it.
During this process, a video is recorded using the inbuilt camera, the oven generates an OTP, and when the waiter serves the food, the customer gets this OTP and can use this to watch a video of their food being sanitized on Valetudo Systems’ website, This is achieved using blockchain. The whole process helps stop the spread of germs and foster trust between restaurants and their customers.
The second device, Phalion, is a self-driving sanitary robot that helps hotels and workspaces meet up with government rules and protocols for COVID-19. It does this by sanitizing a space of 120sqft in just 5 minutes. It also has a GPS attached to it which helps to know if a room was sanitized. The same blockchain technology used in UVC helios to establish trust is used here too. Phalion can be applied to hotel rooms, meeting spaces, and workplaces.
During the outset of the global pandemic crisis caused by the outbreak of coronavirus, many businesses were affected dramatically by the crashing state of the economy. The hospitality industry was not exempted from these effects, as it had it even worse.
Many hotels, restaurants, gyms, and bars were required to comply strictly with Covid-19 protocols, and most had to close down. COVID-19 signaled a steep drop in the hospitality industry’s economy.
This led Debashish Talukdar to dig deep in finding solutions to save his business in the hospitality industry. As a result, Debashish had to develop ideas that suited the present global economic predicament creatively. He collaborated with the scientific community, which led to the invention of the Valetudo Systems device.
“Covid knocked down the hospitality industry to rubble and my digital marketing firm which focused on this industry was no exemption. So we needed to rethink how we could get back our industry into its former glory. We dug deep into our marketing experiences and realized that creating a firm such as Valetudo systems was the best option to market in the new economy,” Debashish explains.
APPLYING CREATIVE IDEAS
Debashish Talukdar sought ways to better the hospitality industry by applying his creative knowledge and skills to current economic issues. He decided to use Valetudo Systems to solve the health crisis in his way, especially as it pertains to the hospitality industry.
“I am keen to explore and experiment. Our products are going to be effective tools in the battle against highly infectious viruses and bacteria. furthermore these products will make people feel secure about not being infected in hotels, restaurants and bars. Valetudo will be a boom for the hospitality sector as it is in dire straits,” Debashish says.
He further added:
‘The business has its ecosystem; it’s not just for profits and loss. You have to look at the whole picture that’s involved. For instance, Covid disrupted the conventional business process, so we looked at humanity more than the product. I think it’s paying off.”
